Paris Jackson’s boyfriend has been accused of being racist over his tattoo which allegedly shows the Confederate flag.
The 26-year-old musician, whose relationship with Miss Jackson was exposed earlier this year, wrote alongside the image:
“I’ve been wanting this tattoo since middle school!”
He added #CowboysFromHell, which perhaps suggests the tattoo is linked to heavy metal band Pantera.
The band used the flag on some of their merchandise and whose frontman was forced to apologise after being caught doing what appeared to be a Nazi salute while shouting ‘white power’.
But Mr Snoddy denied their claims and told the website:
“I wouldn’t be dating a black girl if I were a racist.”
The drummer is the heiress’ first partner since she split with Chester Castellaw in December.
Mr Snoddy, who attended Full Sail University, frequently performs at county fairs with his percussive band Street Drum Corps.
It has previously been reported that the Virginia-born musician, who is said to be a keen Kevin Spacey fan and whose mother is a nurse, met Miss Jackson at one of her AA meetings.
The couple have been documenting their relationship on the photo sharing site, with Miss Jackson thanking Mr Snoddy on her 18th birthday by posting an image of them kissing.
